Chris Wedge, the co-founder of Blue Sky Studios (now owned by Fox and headquartered in White Plains, New York) will be hosting the Academy's annual public screening of this year's ten nominated short films, both live action and animated. Mr. Wedge, in case you don't know, is a 1998 Oscar winner for the animated short "Bunny," and the director of 2002's animated feature "Ice Age" as well as last year's "Robots."
He'll be talking with this year's Oscar nominees on stage. The event is sold out, but the Short Films and Feature Animation Branch will be holding some additional seats for Branch members with one guest. (Contact the Academy's Special Events office at 310-247-3000 Ext. 185 to RSVP.)
